Today is the start of the Advent Season and our text is from Matthew 24. Advent is just four weeks that take us on a journey to Christmas. While we may expect Advent to simply lead us to the birth of Christ, in actuality it is also preparing us for Christ's return. Today we seek Hope in the Waiting.

Bellow you will find the message texts and reflection questions to follow along and continue in discussion. 

          Mathew 24:36-44

          Isaiah 2:1-5

          John 3:14-21  

          Romans 13:11-14  

Reflection Questions

  1. What one thought or idea especially intrigued, surprised or stood out to you today?

  2. In Matthew 24:44 what does Jesus say we must be and why?

  3. When have you taken the time to get ready for something, and then when the time came, the event was canceled or the people were held up? How did it make you feel?

  4. Waiting is hard and can be discouraging. How do you maintain hope in the somewhat dark times of waiting?

  5. Activate: This week, maintain hope in the waiting and live in the light, for the God of Christmas is faithful!
